WALTER HELICHECK MEASURING MACHINES LEAD 2018 FOR WALTER EWAG UK
Enquire about this Story

Walter Ewag UK, a member of the United Grinding Group, reports another successful year of order intake during 2018, following the trend set over the previous three years for its ranges of Walter Helitronic tool grinding and erosion machines, Ewag insert grinding and laser models, as well as the Walter range of Helicheck tool measuring machines.


According to Sales Director Neil Whittingham: “While last year’s order book was especially focused on tool grinding and erosion, this year we’ve also seen a shift towards investment in tool measurement from across the Helicheck range, including the top-of-the-range Helicheck 3D.”


With X, Y and Z axes capacities of 270 mm by 455 mm by 325 mm, plus an A axis of 360deg, the Helicheck 3D utilises a revolutionary method of laser digitising to enable items to be scanned quickly and easily to create three-dimensional model data that can be saved, processed, analysed and measured.


The machine’s 3D Tool Analyser software - specifically developed for the application – can lay horizontal, vertical and freely selectable cutting planes at any position on the 3D model. These are automatically analysed and the resulting parameters made available for use.


The capability to measure all important tool features has never been quicker or simpler than with Helicheck 3D and since measurements are carried out on virtual models, the process can be performed offline.


A software 3D ‘matcher’ enables users to create a colour-coded comparison of two 3D models within the machine’s graphical user interface. After the ‘match’ of both models, the operator instantly receives an evaluation of the quality of the products and any deviations from desired values.


Mr Whittingham adds: “Of course, not all machines ordered in a certain year are delivered during that year, which means we have a healthy outlook as we enter 2019.”
